republican fight over funding and the affordable care act continues in texas, with the state's junior senator, ted cruz, leading the charge against the expansion of health care coverage in this country. >> i am publicly committed along with a number of other senators that under no circumstances will i vote for any continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. now, why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever give up his principles, so republicans have to give up theirs? if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> the senior senator from texas disagrees with his junior senator. >> even if you shut down the government, mandatory spending would continue to pay for the implementation of obama care. we're all on the same side when it comes to the objective. there is some difference of opinion as to the viability, or the likelihood of success of this particular tactic. >> a new survey from usa today shows t

. then concern about the recent roll back, especially in north carolina and texas and florida of voting rights and that we have to make sure we are diligent and stay on it. so that the dream, have we made progress? absolutely. but we still have a lot of work to do and we have got to make sure that as reverend lowrie said we came to commemorate and we have to agitate in our districts and that is important and dr. king would want us to continue to move on and work hard as john lewis says and still have the comeback. i think we are feeling the effects today of a southern strategy put together by richard nixon some time ago to dilute the power of african-american legislators. we have less power in the sense we are not in houses where we are in the majority. and so we have got to figure out how we work that and we need people to come out to vote like never before, especially in local elections, city council and state assemble and state senates and mayoral election p.m. that makes the difference on the bigger ends so the african-americans have the power that dr. king dream was all about. >> the drea

of texas born in calgary, canada. the tea party loves him, given the controversy over mr. obama's birth certificate and speculation cruz is running for president, this probably had to come up eventually. this is the birth certificate. his father born in cuba, his mom in delaware. cruz issued a statement saying, quote, because my mother was a u.s. citizen born in delaware, i was a u.s. citizen by birth. i may technically have dual citizenship. if that's true, i will denounce canadian citizenship, nothing against canada. but i am an american by birth and as a u.s. senator, i believe i should be only an american. a person born outside of the united states and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the united states who resided in the united states. when obama was asked about cruz's eligibility, trump said perhaps not. it came up this morning. >> under no circumstances will i vote for a continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. >> reporter: cruz is a 2016 star already, won a conservative straw poll in denver recently, and this citizenship issue
against the use of what's left of the voting rights act against voter i.d. laws in texas, what does that tell you about where this debate is going looking at the president's address tomorrow? >> well, sensenbrenner did say yesterday at a meeting that the rnc held to commemorate the march on washington that he wanted to be part of a solution on the voting rights act, and he vowed to fix the law by the end of this year which i think is significant. far too many leaders in the republican party have been silent at a time when there's a wave of new voter suppression measures all throughout the south. we have seven southern state that have passed our or implemented new voting restrictions since june bht supreme court gutted the voting rights act. this is a crisis situation. we're seeing the biggest threat to right is that we've seen since the passage of the voting rights act in 1995. >> jonathan, what do you make of that, that sensenbrenner who has a good record is saying we've got do something but not on voter i.d.? >> well on, the one hand it shows leadership. there's a glimmer of leade
by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for our nation's quest for justice until every eligible american has the chance to enter -- exercise his or her right to vote. texans are fighting back. >> this is deeply depressing to see the chief law enforcement officer in the country use partisan politics and that's all it is, to drive a wedge between americans based on race and ethnicity. it's really sad because we have come a long way. obviously we've elected barack obama president of the united states. >> the senator suggests much of this push is about a lame duck administration trying to turn texas into a blue state. arthel: so is there danger if it's interpreted as republicans trying to restrict voting? >> there are certainly some people who think so. virginia, arkansas, tennessee and north dakota have enacted new voter i.d. laws this year and colin powell is among those saying that voting will make it more difficult and immediately turn off voters the g.o.p. needs.

. >> the justice department, speaking of holder is suing texas over the new voter law. they wrote it's good to see the justice department so emphatically oppose laws that would check minority rights. unfortunately, fighting them is far easier said than done. how much can the department of justice do without the preclearance provision that was struck from the voting rights act? >> they can challenge these provisions, it just gets more difficult. in particular, in texas, which passed a voter i.d. law and redistricting plan last year, and the justice department was able to preemptively block them under the law as it was written. the supreme court struck down that part of the law and so the justice department is now returning using another section of the law saying we're still going to go after these provisi provisions, but right now they have to fight the law which is already in place, which is more difficult. they basically have one tool in their tool chest that's been removed. they still are showing it is a priority. >> i want to switch gears to this talk about impeachment. i want to play what sena
you texans call up, because this administration was responsible for the annexation of texas. the tylers have a lot of children. >> it is what kept them apart for a great deal of their married lives. john tyler was constitutionally incapable of being out of public office. he was addicted to it so left her at home to run the family, to run the business, and to continue to manage this incredible group of children they had almost from the very start. >> running their plantation would have been how large an operation? >> one of the issues is a are always on the very edge of solvency, so they never live one place more than 10 years. they are always moving around. they own between 30 and 35 slaves, and they are growing wheat and corn for about 600 acres to 900 acres, and that is between plantations. they then moved to the other side of virginia, so they are continuing to try to figure out a way during these striking economic changes to the country and go into what is going on in 1837, to find a way they can keep their heads above water, and with john tyler gone for so long and so o
30 in fort hood, texas. dozens of witnesses say hassan is the shooter. death penalty cases are rare. in fact no active duty soldier has been executed since 1961. a jury of 13 army officers will have to unanimously convicted him but even then, 11 of the last death sentences handed down by military juries in the last 30 years have been overturned. hassan will be developing himself. he said he committed the mass shooting in defense of taliban terrorists but they characterize as workplace violence. as a result victims of the rampage can not be awarded federal benefits nor can victims receive combatant status. one was shot six times at fort hood. >> i think the act of the government is trying to downplay this all along. hassan has openly admitting makes me angry and makes me guess dusted. >> even if he is convicted, there are likely years if not decades of appeals ahead. >> gregg: thanks very much. we do want to take a moment to remember the 13 men and women who lost their lives that terrible day at fort hood. we actually officiallyers first heard two days, saturday november 7th, 2009. f

after texas was sued. or jan brewer fighting the feds after her crackdown on illegals. tim, in each and every case and in other cases just like them, states defy, and then the government pounces. >> so, president obama does not seem to like federalism very much. federalism is the idea that many issues are best handled by states and the federal government should not tell states how to run their business, and you see very good reason in last the voucher program is mostly used by poor black children in failing schools. it helps them get out of the schools and into better schools, and yet the doj comes in and decides, well, this is somehow resegregating the schools because some people are moving out of some school districts into others. they don't have the firsthand knowledge, the knowledge on the ground and it's absurd to say a program helping poor black kid get into better schools in new orleans is discriminatory, but from washington, lawyers, it looks that way. >> neil: the same for arizona and the crackdown on illegals, or texas, requesting those who vote have proof they are who the

to that message. >> the justice department is suing the state of texas, for example, over its voter i.d. law. indications that the justice department may sue other states as well. why are you calling that a gamble this morning? >> the justice department is relying on a method of challenging the voter i.d. law that hasn't been tested that may be tough. the key is the signal that this administration is sending to the states. attorney general holder said when he announced this, that he didn't want it to be open season for states to try to change their voter law. so it looks like the justice department may also challenge north carolina which also enacted a voter i.d. law, that that state says is necessary to avoid fraud. but the justice department and opponents say clearly will make it harder for minorities to vote. >> okay. so mike allen, let me ask you this. i'm curious. because i keep reading these stories an i hear these fiery condemnations of these laws across the country. in north carolina, in texas, are they just asking people to have a picture i.d. ? or are they, what, doing like, like p
this issue and how homeland security chairman, congressman mike mackall of texas, he was on cbs's "face the nation." we want to play you a bit of what he said. [video clip] >> we're are on a high state of alert. we're doing everything we can to prevent this threat from ever happening. i must say this is probably one of the most specific and credible threats i have seen since nine-11. -- since 9/11. the state department's warning with respect to the arabian peninsula is significant as well . as your commentator mentioned, al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is probably the biggest threat to the homeland. there is an al qaeda faction that still talks about hitting the west. their expertise is chemical explosive hitting the aviation with thes we saw underwear bomber. we are on a high state of alert. i think the administration's call to close these embassies was actually very smart. particularly with what happened in benghazi when warnings were not heeded. you mentioned the prison breaks, i find that to be very interesting as well. in iraq and pakistan and literally thousands of terrorist hav

of texas in the last five years. roughly one million lost jobs in california. that is amazing. in fact, one of the points that we make, we are writing a book on this, it's the theme right now is one of the great transfers in american history geographically from states like california that don't get it that is notme state a right, and then states like texas, this is one reason to be really bullish on the state of texas. texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilating immigrants so that they are successful here. of aornia is much more welfare state. it indoctrinates immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas, in my opinion, for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you are seeing, i think, the differing economic outcomes of a result of this. texas is the model that other states should be in your lading. -- in your lading. -- emulating. >> you can see the entire interview at 5:00 p.m. eastern. later, the sen

during a shooting massacre at fort hood in texas. major nidal hasan has never denied his responsibility for that rampage, which happened in 2009. and in court today, he said the evidence will clearly show that he is, indeed, the fort hood shooter. he apologized. not for killing his fellow service members. but for mistakes he has made as an imperfect muslim, quote: trying to establish the perfect religion. nidal hasan had originally tried to argue he shot u.s. soldiers to protect taliban fighters in afghanistan. the judge didn't allow that defense strategy. at this time it's unclear what hasan's backup plan is since he is acting at his own attorney, he will likely end up cross-examining some of the shooting survivors and maybe even himself. although he did not cross-examine the retired staff sergeant alonzo lunsford who testified today. this photo from june shows sergeant lunsford holding a bullet the doctors dug from his body it. it when it comes to nidal hasan what he did to me was bad. the biggest mistake that he made was i survived. casey stegall with the news. he is at fort hood fo

of the oakland a's who are fighting for a spot to win that division with the texas rangers. that's going to be a huge loss. a guy like nelson cruz, go on down the line. alex rodriguez is the sexy name. >> this controversy's obviously hurt the sport the way that it hurt cycling. do you think baseball will ever be able to rid itself of performance-enhancing drugs? >> well, not just baseball. none of these sports is ever going to rid itself of this type of thing because it's gone around forever. people got short memories. going back to the time of the ancient greeks, i'm sure you don't remember the ancient greeks, you weren't around, i wasn't around either. back then in the old olympics, athletes back then were not allowed to have anything in their body except for water. some athletes are doing stuff like eating the testicles of animals which was their version of steroids. and i'd give you further details but i'm sure people out there are eating. >> we don't want to upset people's dinner, exactly. terrence, before you go, let's talk football. a video has surfaced on the internet showing ral
